To be honest, this place isn't great. I'd say, as you'd probably guess by the scores I gave it, it's just above average. It's definitely the best beer spot in the New York, New York casino.
The atmosphere's not great. You're sitting looking at an annoyingly-lit bartop or down at the gaming floor.
The beers were good. The Shakespeare Stout was good, the Stone Arrogant Bastard and Ruination were both good (thought Ruination was a little tame - possibly old), and the Dogfish Head 90min was awesome. I had one of those each time I wandered past the bar (walking to other casinos, walking out to the floor, etc.).
The service was spotty: sometimes it was great, other times it was absolute garbage. I'd say 3.25 is the most accurate assessment I could give it but was understaffed so I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt.
The selection wasn't as good as you'll see other places, but it was a good round selection of brews to satiate a beer-geek in a non-beer-centric environment.
I don't know what everyone else's prices typically look like, but these were a bit steep for my tastes. Of course, everything in on the strip in Vegas is going to be expensive so I wasn't expecting it to be any other way.
Bottom line: if you can, go to the Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay because the beer selection is vastly superior (not to mention the awesome food). If you need a quick good beer fix and you're in the area, Pour 24 will have to do. Luckily for you, it's not that bad and is somewhat capable of getting the job done.

Was just out in Las Vegas and checked up on here before I headed out. Ended up @ Pour 24 the night before New Years. Was not blown away by the selection, but it was better than most bars I came across in Vegas.
Open 24 hours, list consists of what others posted. Stones, Rogues, New Belgiums dominating the list. I had a Rogue Shakespeare that fell waaay flat. Not sure what happened there. Believe it was $7.50 per brew. Was not blown away, bar sits in a "walk / through" corodor of the NYNY casino which makes you feel like a hamster in a cage while the tourists float by. Worth a drive by brew.

A craft beer oasis in a desert of casinos.
There is little to complaint about for a decent place that offers good draft beer in the middle of the strip. Located in one of the indoor public passage areas of the "New York, New York" hotel and casino, the intent to offer 24 brews on tap is quite commendable.
Given the setting, the perception of the place typically hinges on the service. Of the two servers at the time of our visit one seemed decent if somewhat uninterested, while the one that took care of us during most of the session was knowleadeble, collaborative, and rather pleasing. He quickly spotted our interest in craft beers, and was very accomodating with small tastes of the brews, and suggested good brews according to the different profile of the customer, quite the professional actually.
The atmosphere is Vegas casino crowd so that is that, with very few of the patrons actually ordering craft brews, settling instead for cocktails, frozen drinks, or macros, of which they also held a good quantity to cover the demand. In that context we felt that those interested in the taps were very well taken care of. All brews were served in a generic, maybe not ideal but fairly appropriate, glassware in the form of tall conic shaped glasses, with good pouring protocol.
Sure enough the selection while good might not be mind blowing, but even though a couple of the kegs were done for the day, the offer was pretty decent, and it is a good stop for craft aficionados who can not scape the strip.
At the time:
Abita Purple Haze
Adam's Apple Ale
Big Sky IPA
Big Sky Moose Drool
Newcastle Brown Ale
Firestone Pale Ale
Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat
Primo Island Lager
Sin City Amber
Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA
Blue Moon Seasonal
Deschutes Black Butte Porter
New Belgium 1554
New Belgium Fat Tire
New Belgium Mothership Wit
Sam Adams Seasonal
Rogue Dead Guy Ale
Rogue Shakespeare Stout
Stone Arrogant Bastard
There were also some perfunctory macro bottles and a cider on tap. Ah, and if anybody is into buying their souvenir plastic glass-bottle they sure can refill it with any selection to go. Likewise, while during our time they did not serve any food, patrons are very welcome to bring their own from any of the stablishments in that area of the casino. So there is no excuse not to have a bite if one need to do so with the beer.

As others have said, Pour 24 is in a shopping area overlooking the casino in New York New York.
The beer choice is good for a casino (apart from Burger Bar) but not that special. They have a habit of serving beer in plastic glasses which I certainly don't find to my taste (unless I was at a rock concert where I can understand it) and I requested my second drink in a proper glass, only for it to be poured into plastic.
We were going to order another drink, but the bar tender gruffly announced that his shift was finishing and we should settle up. Hardly made us feel welcome.
The Magic Shop opposite is better!

Visited Pour 24 recently on a weekend trip to Vegas with my girlfried and one of her friends. Definitely a decent place with a nice atmosphere but never really too many people around the bar. The bar is located basically in the hallway just inside the New York New York hotel building right next to Coyote Ugly and is overlooking the hotels casino. Nice tap selection at about 20 or so (can't remember exactly) with some big names and really good beers. Tried a Stone Ruination on tap and it was excellent. First time I had it and wish I could have it here. Also had a few other beers by Stone, Abita, Pyramid, and a couple locals. I took a couple flights in order to try as many beers (or all of them) that I hadn't had before. The bartender wasn't the most social person but still was helpful when I asked for a good place to buy beer in town and referred me to Lee's Discount Liquor about 5 miles down the street which had a great selection. Hotel is located right on the strip so it's a great place to stop if you are just wandering around as I was. Seemed to be the best place for good beer on the strip of all the places I visited. Would absolutely go back if I happen to make it back to Vegas at any time.

Visited Pour 24 on August 7, 2009. Located on the second flour of New York New York, overlooking the casino. Thought the atmosphere was great, but the bar was relatively slow during our visit (7pm on a Friday). Went for the flight, choosing Big Daddy IPA, Black Butte, Adams Apple Ale, Big Sky IPA and Wailua Wheat...was not too impressed with the Adams Apple.
Unfortunately they do not serve any food...would have loved to stay and have a few more pints. Overall, a decent selection of beer for Vegas and would recommend to BA's with plans to visit the area.

Had a great bartender named Eddie. Bar is out in the open at the top of the escalator. This makes the atmosphere less than perfect. Wasn't terribly busy and talked with me about most of the beers, allowing me little samplers for free. I had 6 beers including the 4-6oz flyer pack. Too bad they didn't have food, would have been great to stay there and eat at the same time. Will be back the next time I'm in Vegas.
Eddie was a laid back Mexican with 70's swept back hair. Talked with a slow drawl and recommends the Arrogant Bastard.

It took a little bit of searching as it's fairly well hidden on the 2nd floor of New York New York right outside of Coyote Ugly and the closest exit is the walkway leading to Excalibur.
The service was average, and their gut instinct, as at most places on the strip, is to serve their beer in plastic cups, but they are perfectly willing to supply glasses if asked, though they appear to serve most items in a pilsner glass regardless of style.
The tap selection was impressive, especially for someone from the east coast (Deschutes, New Belgium, Alaskan Brewing, Firestone Walker, etc...), but nothing that I would consider extrraordinary.
Service was average to above average and the vibe was low key. The taps incased in ice is a nice touch as is the design of the bar itself. A wonderful place to unwind, enjoy a beer, and people watch.
The $7.50 per draft price is a little pricey, but then again it's Vegas, so it is partly expected.

I only had Dog Fish Head 60 min and Arrogant Bastard.
The Arrogant Bastard was either bad or the tap was dirty.
DFH 60 min tasted on par.
and they still have Ruination.
The bartender Heather was great. One of the best bartenders I've run across in Vegas. Great service and personality.
The best thing about this place is that it's 24/7.
I don't think they have as many good beers on tap as before stated or reviewed though. I didn't see any Kona and I believe she said they took off some Rogue as well as the ESB from Alaska.
Hopefully they replace some of the average with more stand out selections.

This was my home base for much of my 2-day stay in Vegas. I won $500 on the penny slots with a $10 bill. Obviously it was a positive first experience with gambling. I've never had the desire to do it, but I was in Vegas so I thought I'd at least spend $10 and it sure as hell paid off. Anyway... so my big hit came at NYNY, so after I cashed out and offered to buy everybody around me a drink, we headed up the escalators to the Pour 24, which is not only one of the best beer places between NYNY and Mandalay Bay, where I was staying, but it was the only one I know of that was open 24 hours. What a disappointment the nightlife in Vegas turned out to be for me, but this place was decent enough.
This place has 24 different beers and is open 24 hours a day. You do the math. I mostly drank Stone Ruination, Arrogant Bastard, and Firestone Pale. They had a decent mix of light to dark and sweet to bitter, but I had to get my West Coast hops fix, since this was part of my West Coast trip. Pints were $7.50, which was kind of shitty, but I didn't have many other choices after midnight. Besides, it was in the only casino that I actually ended up winning at, so I felt inclined to give some back, even if the bar isn't actually affiliated in any way to NYNY aside from being located in the building.
